    Dying Girl: Put Me In Coach. (The Tillers Fundraiser)

    Hello Friends did you watch the story on CBS Sunday Morning about Lauren Hill? She is a good friend of The Tillers and they need your help.

    If you’ve been paying much attention to the news around town you may be familiar with the heart wrenching tale of our young local hero, Lauren Hill. The brave 19 year old with an inoperable brain tumor who, with an estimated life expectancy of just a few more months, continues to be a shining example of strength and courageousness despite her challenge. In her remaining days, Lauren has chosen to live and to fight alongside ‘The Cure Starts Now Foundation’ to raise awareness for pediatric brain cancer, DIPG and to one day find a cure. It is no wonder that our local girl’s inspiring story has spread around the world.

    In honor of Lauren, The Tillers and Muddy Roots Music Recordings will be donating %50 of Tillers merchandise sales profits raised in the month of November to ‘The Cure Starts Now’.
